A. The Law has been clarified from 1st January 2004. In essence the Law now states that the Visible Light Transmission must be at least 70% through the driver and front passenger windows – even after the application of Window Film (or other accessories). However, there are no restrictions to the darkness/colour of the window film that can be applied to windows behind the ‘B’ Pillar.
A. We are not allowed to interfere with the “Optical Clarity” of the windscreen. However, you may have a sun band to the top, but it must be less than 8 inches in depth.
A. Many reasons. Firstly manufacturer glass does not protect the passengers from UV radiation – which can be harmful to you, your children and pets (see World Health Organization). Also, coloured glass has worse solar rejection properties than clear glass, so your car may actually get hotter and (if you have air-conditioning) use more fuel keeping the occupants cool!
A. The Llumar® and Formula 1® products used by Advanced Tinting have been tried and tested in the most demanding environments. All our fitters undergo training on correct application by the manufacturers to ensure a professional service. All our metal-based products are supplied with a 60-month warranty that covers bubbling, peeling and fading.
A. There are three main extra benefits:
A. We guarantee both our work and the window film for life
A. Easily. With most common window cleaning products like Windex, Glass Plus, etc. Never use brushes or any abrasives which will harm the surface.
A. No. CDF (Clear Distortion Free) adhesives form a molecular bond to the glass, eliminating unsightly bubbling.
A. The building will have a uniform appearance typically only found with expensive treated glass.
A. No. Neutral window films are designed to be viewed from the inside and will not compromise your view from the indoors. Privacy window films will change the interior appearance.
A. No, not if the glass is installed by experts according to CPFilms Film-to-Glass Recommendations. There are times, however, when there are invisible chips in an area of the glass which become stressed after window film is installed, subsequently causing a breakage.
A. Specialty designs can either be hand-cut or computer generated to give the appearance of etched glass.
